The domestic flight operation of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) experienced a delay on Tuesday evening due to stoppage of fuel supply by Pakistan State Oil (PSO), the airline’s spokesperson said.
Speaking to a local news outlet, PIA spokesperson Mashood Tajwar said that PSO had refused to supply fuel to the national carrier due to outstanding dues.
As a result, PK-306 from Karachi to Lahore, PK-370 from Karachi to Islamabad, and PK-536 Karachi to Sukkur were delayed for a period of two hours.
The fuel supply was restored between 8-8:30pm following which the domestic flight operation resumed.
Meanwhile, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) spokesperson said that the authority was unaware of such a delay.
